Possible Forms of Post-Conviction Relief

If you are an immigrant who has been convicted of a crime in Utah, the lawyers at Keen Law Offices, LLC are here to help you. In order to mitigate the consequences of your conviction, our Utah criminal and immigration lawyers can:

  • File a motion to modify a conviction from an aggravated felony to a simple felony
  • Seek to reduce a felony to a misdemeanor
  • File a motion to vacate a conviction entirely
  • Seek to have a conviction overturned or vacated because the immigrant was not properly advised of the consequences of a guilty plea or conviction, or because his or her criminal defense attorney provided ineffective assistance of counsel

Keen Law Offices, LLC's Utah immigration and criminal law attorneys will review all of the documents from your case to determine whether any errors have been made. If so, we will provide prompt and vigorous legal representation to try to reduce or vacate your conviction and protect your immigration status.

Sworn To Advocate For Our Clients

“My father was a U.S. citizen, but I was born in another country.” Everyone in the government kept telling me I didn’t belong in the U.S., that I should give up and go “home” to the U.K. Immigration kept trying to get rid of me, and even issued a deportation order. Luckily, I found Keen Law Offices. Mr. Keen was the only person who believed I was a citizen; he fought my case, and after a long battle, Immigration gave in. They even issued me a certificate stating that I was a U.S. citizen since birth!”Stephen, Immigration Client
